BIG MATCH PREVIEW: IRON v MILLWALL

16 December 2016

The Iron welcome Millwall to Glanford Park, in their final home match of 2016.

Graham Alexander’s men are undefeated in the league throughout the calendar year, and will be looking to preserve the impressive record heading into 2017.

Both sides will also go into the match seeking a response to their respective loses against Rochdale and Shrewsbury Town last weekend.



Speaking ahead of the game, Alexander says only David Mirfin will be missing, with everyone else in the squad fit and ready to go.

Captain Stephen Dawson hasn’t suffered any repercussions of his ankle injury after coming through a full 90 minutes against Rochdale last weekend.

United will be hoping Murray Wallace is available also, after suffering a dead leg in last week's game.



Strikes from Gary McSheffrey and Jim O’Brien, either side of half time, secured an impressive victory at the Den back in February of this year.

McSheffrey set his side on their way to victory in the 17th minute, rifling home after a flowing team move.

United’s win was then wrapped up in stoppage time, as O’Brien placed the ball into the bottom corner of the goal with a low drive.

Report: Iron 3-0 Millwall

17 December 2016

The Iron returned to winning ways, as they comfortably defeated Millwall 3-0 at Glanford Park to ensure they ended the year undefeated at home.

A brace from Paddy Madden and a Hakeeb Adelakun strike just ahead of half time made sure of the points for United, who maintained their place at the top of the League One table.

Graham Alexander made four changes to the side which started the game against Rochdale, as Jordan Clarke, Harry Toffolo, Adelakun and Tom Hopper replaced Scott Wiseman, Conor Townsend, Duane Holmes and Kevin van Veen in the starting eleven.

There was incident right from the off, with Hopper making a burst into the Millwall penalty area inside of nine seconds. The forward went down under the challenge of a Lions defender, but referee Roger East waved away the subsequent appeals for a spot kick.

United were firmly on top in the opening minutes of proceedings, and Adelakun was the danger - running at, and probing the visitors’ backline.

It was then the turn of Neil Harris’ team to do some pressing of their own, with Luke Daniels forced into two smart saves in quick succession. The first of which was from Shaun Williams, whose spectacular long range volley meant the Iron ‘keeper had to dive to his right in order to prevent the ball finding the top corner of the goal. That save was superbly backed up by another minutes later, as Lee Gregory was denied at the near post.

Adelakun was proving a constant threat and, just after the half an hour mark, he went close to opening the scoring. His driving run deserved a finish at the end of it. However, Jordan Archer in the Millwall goal saved well, as the Scunthorpe winger tested him with a low strike.

It wasn’t long before the visiting defence was breached though. Josh Morris again was the man to provide it, flighting in a perfect cross for Madden at the near post, who flicked the ball expertly into the opposing corner of the goal.

No sooner had the home side found the net once, they were then netting for a second time. It was a case of persistence paying off for Adelakun and, after a fine first half display, he rounded it off with a goal. Clarke’s initial work was superb, as he carried the ball over the halfway line and fed the winger, whose second time finish was unerring.

Adelakun’s strike was the perfect way to end an impressive first showing, for both the winger and his teammates, who went in two ahead at the break.

Opportunities were few and far between at the beginning of the second period. Adelakun and Madden combined for the best opening up until that point, but Neal Bishop’s goal-bound shot was blocked well.

A third was not long in coming though, as Madden got his second of the afternoon. Credit to Hopper, whose determination won the ball back from the visitors. The forward then had the presence of mind to square for his strike-partner, who slotted home into the corner of the net.

Madden’s second gave United that all important breathing space, and more chances soon followed. Full back Toffolo optimised the confidence flowing through the side, as he burst past four bodies, before drawing a save out of Archer.

That hat-trick for Scunthorpe’s number nine looked as though it had arrived on 77 minutes. However, he would be frustrated, with his half-volley flying just wide of the goal.

More half chances came the way of the home side as the game came towards its conclusion, but three is what Alexander and his side would ultimately have to settle for, with referee East bringing a halt to proceedings shortly afterwards.
